bazell, nbc news, new york. >>> up next here tonight, the actual research about getting along with the in-laws. >>> veteran new yorkers didn't know what they were looking at last night. a lot of them were worried someone had gone and tarted up the dignified empire state building. it was the first display of a new array of lights at the very top of what is still the grand master of the new york skyline. last night's show was coordinated to an alicia keys song. the owners of the building say they'll use the new led lights to display various light patterns from now on. we'll be watching. >>> one of the most influential figures in american sports has died. marvin miller never played major league baseball, but he changed the game nonetheless. when he took the job as leader of the major league players union in 66, the minimum salary back then was $6,000, and the owners had all the power. by 1982, when he retired, the union was one of the strongest in the u.s. the average player's salary was almost a quarter million dollars. the players had won free agency. he was by any standard a game changer. marv
the law. they changed the law so that only a special election could fill a vacant seat. until then, the seat would have to be empty. mitt romney tried to veto that new law. but the legislature overrode his veto, thereby stripping mitt romney of his power to choose a replacement. that became a mute point because john kerry didn't win so he stayed on as senator. but then fast forward fife years. 2009. new president barack obama, the country embroiled in a big debate over national health reform. those against it were against it to the point of rage. and those wo who wanted it were excited to be on the cusp of achieving something they had failed to achieve for decades. at the time the democrat hs a majority in the united states senate, 60 seats is a filibuster super majority. that's enough to pass health reform. that majority for the democrats included senator ted kennedy. senator kennedy spent his career trying to pass health reform. it was his life's work. he had done it at the state level with that guy, mitt romney. he had led on the issue nationally for decades. it was his signatur
, the state's former republican chairman greer claims they passed a law that was designed to squelch turnout and give the election to mitt romney. it made it harder for voters who moved to actually cast ballots. the republican party of florida has responded and tell "outfront," i want to quote them here, jim greer's quotes are false and details keep changing. great to have both of you. roland, let me start with you. these accusations come from jim greer, former boss of the party. he is accused of stealing money from the party. accusations come from charlie crist who abandoned the party to run as an independent. all that context is important. are these claims credible, though? >> for two years i've been blasting these efforts in florida as outright voter suppression and it is no shock to me that you're actually hearing this. it goes beyond just shortening early voting days. remember, they got rid of voting on sunday. now, in a country where you want more people voting, why would you take away a day when people would say, hey, no need to go to the polls tuesday, i can actually vote on that par

alternatives for healing. these four men and the southern poverty law center which is representing them claim the center falsely offered cures and used tactics that sound less like therapy and more like mental torture. things like being made to undergo individual and group sessions in the nude. being made to cuddle other same sex clients and counselors. being made to beat an effigy of one's mother. go to gyms and bath houses in order to be nude, the lawsuit claims, with father figures. being subject, the suit also claims, to ridicule, and i'm quoting the complaint here, as homos and other anti-gay slurs that start with the letter f but is too offensive to repeat here. sounds a lot like bullying, doesn't it? experts say it amounts to quack science. this from the american psychiatric association. i'm quoting now. in the last four decades, reparative therapists have not produced any rigorous scientific research to substantiate their claims of cure. until there is such research available, the apa recommends that ethical practitioners refrain from attempts to change individuals' sexual orientation
on taxes, anything that sounds like they will be rewarded for breaking the law and they will get an easy past is considered amnesty. jon: ronald reagan did it, didn't he? >> yes. republicans are a natural homss, they believe, for latinos. they are the party of opportunity, and hard work, of entrepreneurs and they are pro family. they have to start to speak about these issues where it doesn't sound like they are breaking up families. the republicans are trying to promote for science, technology and engineering and math, whether it's a high skilled visa or a low skilled advice a whether it's farm workers, domestic workers who clean hotepal this is all immigrant labor, and this apalo has an economic component in addition to the fact that many of their churches are telling them we can no longer side with this anti-immigration position. so it is changing out from under them and i think they are going to look for a way that they can change policy without a political backlash. joons we will be talking more about the upcoming elections a little bit later in the hour. a.b. stoddard, thank you. >>
the train or the bus even when the law said they had no such right. except for their bravery that led them to take that stand, they were just regular people. jack warren, who was hauled by police off a city bus on may 19th, 1986. he was hauled off that bus and arrested for the crime of insisting that he should be allowed to ride with everybody else. even though he had a disability and even though he had mobility issues. he was part of a group called "adapt." they were founded in denver in 1983. they are active in cities across the u.s. back then and still now in some cities this footage comes from san francisco in 1986. activists in wheelchairs facing down city buses and police officers chaining themselves to the bus wheels, knowing they would be arrested. nothing says asking to pay your fare just like everybody else. pressured by those protests and these activists making their case, it was papa bush who signed the americans with disability act. it was a huge leap forward. it's why we have wheelchair lifts on buses now and curb cuts and sidewalks and instructions in braille on atms. it's w

insurance coverage, contraception, as you know, can cost a woman over $3,000 during law school. for a lot of students, who like me are on public interest scholarships, that's practically an entire summer's salary. 40% of the female students at georgetown law reported to us that they struggled financially as a result of this policy. >> sean: believe it or not, those are the words of somebody that "time" magazine is now considering as person of the year? you heard it right. the failing magazine is now elevating former georgetown law student sandra fluke to the same level as winston churchill, pope john ii, and more. here to explain how advocating for publicly-funded birth control qualifies fluke as the person of the year. good to see you. thanks for being with us. >> great to be here. >> sean: marjorie, it's $9 a month at wal-mart to get birth control pills. you can get all the condoms you want. in new york city, at a bar, they're free. just take a handful on your way out. planned parenthood, too. do you think she should be woman of the year? >> the reason that sandra fluke represents what
was banned. one of his goals is to create a state ruled by islamic or sharia laws. the u.s. does not consider the muslim brotherhood a foreign terrorist organization. the egyptian government banned the muslim brotherhood because of its suspected role in the assassination plot of the president. bill: later this hour general jack keane is here to talk about the recent turmoil in egypt and claims morsi is a new kind of pharaoh for egypt. martha: twin car bombs in damascus, syria, the blast targeted an area known to be loyal to president bashar al-asaad. then people ran out to help those who were injured in that initial explosion and then came the second large explosion. according to the estimates. 40,000 syrians have died in all of this horrific violence in syria that has been going on now for two years. bill: we are just getting started. $2 and a dream. so many lining unto buy a ticket for one of the largest lottery jackpots we have ever seen. we'll take you to one town where folks to sure use a half billion prize. martha: ambassador susan rise expected on capitol hill. she faced a tough crowd
